Safety Precautions
AC Power Supply
The HGM-RD uses a universal power supply that is capable of accepting inputs of 100 to 240 VAC, 50/60 Hz.
Ensure the source voltage matches the voltage of the product before energizing the equipment. It is highly
suggested that the HGM-RD be placed on its own circuit with UPS or surge protection.
Protective Grounding
Under no circumstances should the HGM-RD be operated without connection to a protective ground. Doing
so poses a potential shock hazard and is also a violation of electrical safety standards applicable to this type
of equipment.
Explosive Atmosphere
Do not operate this equipment in the presence of flammable liquids, vapors or aerosols. Operation of any
electrical instrument in such an environment constitutes a safety hazard.
Proper Exhaust Venting
It is imperative that the exhaust port on this instrument be properly vented as described in this manual.
Failure to do so may constitute a safety hazard.
Accessing the Interior of the Monitor
Extreme care should be exercised when accessing the interior of the monitor. Only qualified electrical
maintenance personnel should perform connections and adjustments. Always remove AC power before
working inside the monitor.
Misuse and Modifications to the Monitor
The protection provided by the monitor may be impaired if the monitor is used in a manner not specified by

Halogen Gas Monitor – MultiZone Remote Display
Functional Overview
General Description
Refrigerant monitors are specified to support compliance to federal, state and local safety codes governing
refrigerant emissions. Avoiding significant refrigerant loss reduces equipment replacement costs, maintains
equipment efficiency, promotes safety, and protects the environment.
An audible alarm and front panel indicators are provided to signal alarm and fault conditions, and relay
contacts are provided that can be used to trigger external alarm devices in the event of a system fault, or if a
leak (small), spill (medium), or evacuation (large) level of gas is detected.
The HGM-RD requires only minor periodic maintenance such as the occasional replacement of filters. The
monitor incorporates active diagnostics that continuously check the system for proper operation. A front
panel indicator is provided to alert an operator of system malfunctions, and fault codes are generated that
enable the user to identify the cause of the fault.
Communication Options
The HGM-RD features full two-way communications via an RS-485 interface. MODBUS RTU is the
communication protocol standard. The instrument can be connected to a Building Management System or it
may be operated as a stand-alone system with Bacharach’s HGM-MZ (P/N 3015-5074).
Please refer to the Appendix for a more complete discussion of communication protocols.
Understanding Monitoring Levels
Effective use of this instrument requires an understanding of what constitutes reasonable alarm set points for
the types of gasses being monitored. Refrigerant manufacturers define allowable exposure levels and
threshold limit values in units of parts per million (ppm). Bacharach has developed recommended monitoring
levels based on compliance to ANSI/BSR ASHRAE 15-1994 and ASHRAE Safety Code 34-1992. These
reference levels are listed in the Appendix.
Setting the unit at these recommended alarm levels will satisfy the needs of most users. However, the PPM
levels generated by system leaks into the environment are greatly influenced by the volume of air in the
sampling area, air circulation, size of the leak, distance to the monitoring point, and a host of other variables.
In some cases the set points may need to be adjusted either up or down to achieve effective monitoring.
Suggested Location of Sampling Points
At the point of a refrigerant leak the gas is nearly pure. As the refrigerant is dispersed into the air, the gas
molecules diffuse causing a dilution of the original concentration. The HGM-MZ measures the refrigerant
concentration at the precise point the sample is collected. Therefore, if the termination of the collection line is
not at the exact point of the refrigerant leak, then the unit will read a diluted mixture of the refrigerant gas
and air.
It should also be noted that refrigerant gas is heavier than air and tends to collect below the point of a leak.
Therefore samples taken near the floor will have a greater concentration of gas than those collected above
the source of a leak will. Consequently, sampling points should ideally be located as close as possible to the
source of potential leaks. Line-end filters should be mounted 12" to18" above the floor. If this is impractical,
then the alarm set points should be adjusted for that zone to compensate for the dilution of the refrigerant gas.
DO NOT plug any of the zones. Plugging a zone will give the monitor a false indication during start up.
The HGM-MZ should be centrally located in the mechanical room and be readily accessible for easy visual
monitoring and servicing. Air sample tubing may be run in lengths up to 500 feet. The fresh air purge line
should draw from an area that does not contain any refrigerant gas and cannot exceed 300 feet in length. The
exhaust line should run to an out side location if possible. The length of the exhaust line cannot exceed
300 feet.
Ideally, two to three pick up points spaced around each chiller will provide sufficient coverage. It may be
necessary to perform a “smoke” test of the mechanical room to determine the best locations. The smoke test
would provide the pattern of air currents present in the mechanical room.

The HGM-RD should be mounted outside of the mechanical room or at least just inside of a door to the room.
This is the “split architecture design” for safety of the operator. The HGM-RD can be located up to 4500 feet
from the HGM-MZ. The HGM-RD is the man machine interface by which you program the HGM-MZ,
acknowledge alarms and observe conditions inside of the mechanical room. Note that there are two additional
alarm relay contacts in the HGM-RD that can be programmed to alarm with “leak, spill, evacuate, fault or
monitor on”.
Response to the Presence of Multiple Refrigerants
Technically speaking, the HGM-MZ is a refrigerant level monitor, not a gas analyzer. You must program the
instrument to test for a specific refrigerant in each zone, and it will only return accurate concentration readings
for that particular refrigerant. If a leak occurs of another refrigerant gas type, the instrument may return
deceptive readings.
Most applications only require detection of a single refrigerant and the problems that are associated with
monitoring multiple gasses are rarely an issue. If there is a possibility of multiple refrigerants leaking in the
same sampling zone, you should consider carefully which refrigerant compound you program the instrument
to monitor.

Inspection
The HGM-RD has been thoroughly inspected and tested prior to shipment from the factory. Nevertheless, it
is recommended that the instrument be re-checked prior to installation. Inspect the outside of the enclosure
to make sure there are no obvious signs of shipping damage. Loosen the four screws on the sides of the
enclosure and remove the front panel. Visually inspect the interior of the display for loose components that
may have become dislodged during shipment. If damage is discovered, please contact the nearest
Bacharach Service Center for assistance.
Location of the Monitor
The HGM-RD should be centrally located in the facility (preferably outside of the mechanical room) and
should be easily accessible for visual monitoring and servicing. This is the “split architecture design” for
safety of the operator.
Dirt, grease, and oils can adversely affect the operation of the HGM-RD. The monitor should be installed out
of direct sunlight in a clean, dry area that is not subject to temperature or humidity extremes. Installation of
the monitor in a mechanical room is acceptable provided reasonable environmental conditions exist. If there
is a question, consider installing the unit outside of the mechanical room in a cleaner area of the facility.
The HGM-RD can be located up to 4500 feet from the furthest HGM-MZ. The HGM-RD is a man machine
interface by which you can program the HGM-MZ, acknowledge alarms, and observe conditions inside the
mechanical room. Note that there are two additional alarm relay contacts in the HGM-RD that can be
programmed to alarm with “leak, spill, evacuate, fault or monitor on”.

Electrical Wiring
The HGM-RD uses a universal power supply that is capable of accepting inputs of 100 to 230 VAC, 50/60 Hz.
The monitor’s power consumption is 25 Watts. It is highly recommended that the monitor be connected
directly to the AC power source, preferably on its own circuit. The AC power connection should be completed
with UL approved 3-conductor wire (14−18 AWG), rated 300 VAC at 105°C.
Locate a convenient service knockout and install electrical conduit in the typical manner.
Locate the AC Input Terminals and Ground Stud on the inside of the monitor (Page 11). Secure the incoming
AC power neutral (white/blue) and live (black/brown) wires to the LINE 1 and LINE 2 terminals.
Using the supplied crimp-on ring terminals, washers, and nuts, connect the incoming AC power ground wire
(green) to the monitor’s AC Input Ground Stud, and then install a separate wire between the ground stud and
the GND terminal.
WARNING: Electrical installation should be performed by a certified electrician, and
should comply with all applicable NEC/CEC and local electrical safety codes.
WARNING: Copper conductors for connection to supply mains must be made in
accordance with NEC/CEC and local codes.
WARNING: The AC power ground wire must first be connected to the monitor’s
ground stud. Under no circumstances should this monitor be operated without a
protective ground. Doing so poses a potential shock hazard, and is also a violation of
electrical safety standards applicable to this type of equipment.
CAUTION: Drilling holes in the HGM-RD enclosure may damage the unit and will
void the warranty. Please use knockouts provided for electrical connections.
A switch or circuit breaker rated 1.0 A, 250 VAC must be attached to the monitor’s AC power leads. This
switch must also be located in close proximity to the monitor, and be in easy reach of the operator. This
switch should also be clearly marked as the monitor’s main AC disconnect device.

Communication Connections
HGM-MZ Network
The HGM-RD is connected to the HGM-MZ using a shielded twisted pair instrument cable. The maximum
distance between the furthest away HGM-MZ and HGM-RD is 4500 feet.
Use any of the remaining service knockouts to gain access to the interior of the monitor. The RS-485
communication wiring between the HGM-MZ and HGM-RD must be connected in the following manner:
Locate the RS-485 connector in the HGM-MZ (Page 16 of HGM-MZ manual 3015-5074). Connect one
lead of a twisted shielded pair to the “B” connection point (the far right point), note the wire color.
Connect the second wire to the “A” connection point (the middle), note the wire color. Connect the
ground to the “GND” connection point
Locate the RS-485 connector marked “TO MONITORS” in the HGM-RD (Page 12). This connector is located
on the bottom of the HGM-RD PC board, second from the right. Make the wire run to the HGM-RD and
connect the twisted shielded pair to the RS-485 TO MONITORS connector using the same color code as
used on the HGM-MZ.
Integration with Building Management System
A second RS-485 connector inside the HGM-RD allows a Building Management System to “talk” to the HGMMZ network through the HGM-RD. The connection is established using a shielded twisted pair cable.
Use any of the remaining service knockouts to gain access to the interior of the HGM-RD. Locate the RS-485
connector marked “TO HOST” (Page 12) and remove it from the circuit board. Secure the wire leads to the
connector orienting them as shown in the diagram below. Check to make sure that the polarity matches the
wiring to the Building Management System. When you are through securing the connections, carefully plug
the connector back onto the circuit board.

Halogen Gas Monitor – MultiZone Remote Display
Changing Terminator Switch Settings
The terminator switch for the RS-485 “TO MONITORS” connector is shipped from the factory in the
terminated or “IN” position. This is the correct setting if the HGM-RD is connected to only one HGM-MZ, or if
it is the last device on a network chain. If the HGM-RD is being installed in the middle of a network, the
terminator must be moved to the “OUT” position. Refer to Multiple HGMs on Page 20.
The terminator switch for the RS-485 “TO HOST” connector is shipped from the factory in the terminated or
“IN” position. This is the correct setting if the HGM-RD is the last device on the network chain. If other
devices are daisy chained through the HGM-RD, the terminator must be moved to the “OUT” position. Refer
to Connecting to a Building Management System on Page 20.
Locate each terminator switch and determine its position. If it needs to be moved, carefully slide the switch to
the proper position.

Setup Parameters
Before working with the HGM-MZ network, several global parameters must be defined. Most of these are
entered in the RDM Setup Screens or via the PC software. Parameters must also be defined for each
HGM-MZ monitor connected to the network. These settings serve to identify each monitor and define how
they operate. These are entered in the HGM Setup Screens. Finally, parameters must be defined for each
individual monitoring zone. These are entered in the Zone Setup Screens.
Password Protection
The HGM-RD can be password protected to prevent the unauthorized editing of setup parameters. When
password protection is enabled, an operator may still navigate between screens to observe settings or
monitor network status. The password can be alpha-numeric.
The unit is shipped with password protection OFF. Entering a password in the RDM Setup Screen #1
enables password protection. After protection is enabled, the user will be prompted to enter the password
when an attempt is made to edit a setup parameter.
After entering the password, a 30 minute time period will be allowed for entries, after which the user will again
be prompted to re-enter the password.
IMPORTANT: Please make note of your password and save it.

General Operation
Functional Overview
Normally each HGM-MZ will sequentially perform measurements on its active zones without user input. The
total time it takes an HGM-MZ to complete a measurement cycle is directly proportional to the number of
active zones and the physical length of the air lines. Monitors linked together on a network operate
independently of each other and consequently complete their respective measurement cycles at different
rates.
The HGM-RD operates by polling the network approximately once every 12 seconds to determine the current
status of the HGM-MZ monitors. If more than one HGM-MZ is connected to the network, it will sequentially
poll each monitor for its status. This means that the more complicated the network, the longer it will take the
HGM-RD to update the status information for all zones.
To display all the zones being monitored, go to the System Screen (Page 19) and press the ZONES key.
The Zone Screen
The top level Zone Screen provides a summary view of zone activity across the network. Each screen
displays information from a single HGM-MZ monitor as indicated at the top of the display. Each screen can
display information for up to 8 zones, and depending on the configuration of the system, there can be up to
two screens for each HGM-MZ. Use the UP/DOWN cursor keys or the NEXT key to scroll the screen display.
Each box displays the zone location and the last PPM measurement. A blinking box indicates that a
measurement is currently being taken in that location. An inverse flashing box indicates an alarm condition in
that zone.
Use the LEFT/RIGHT cursor keys to scroll through the zones.

The Trend Screen
Overview - Log Interval
The HGM-MZ retains a data log of 100 measurements for each zone. The log interval is the number of
minutes from 1 to 1440 between each log point. This parameter can be changed from Zone Setup Screen
#1 (Page 27).
The default setting for this parameter is 1440 minutes (24 hours). If the log interval time is set to 0, then a
measurement is recorded in the trend log after every measurement cycle. Therefore, after the trend log is
filled it will contain the last 100 measurement points for a zone. If you want the data logged less frequently
you should increase this value. It is important to remember that cycle time is dependent on many factors,
including the number of zones being monitored, input line length, and the run zeroing mode selected. Before
changing this value it may be useful to first review the log data using the Trend Screen to determine the
nominal cycle time.

displayed at the top of the screen above the graph. The trend graph is automatically scaled to accommodate
the largest PPM value displayed. The ZOOM OUT and ZOOM IN options, located in the bottom corners of
the screen, allow you to adjust the vertical scale of the graph.
The trend data is stored on a first-in, first-out basis. After 100 trend values have been stored the 101st value
will replace the first value stored. Therefore, in normal operation, when entering trend mode the cursor will be
located at the most recent data point. The data points to the left of the initial cursor location will be the next
most recent. The data point to the right will be the oldest data point in the buffer and will be over written by
the next data point.

Halogen Gas Monitor – MultiZone Remote Display
System Faults
Functional Overview
If a system malfunction occurs, the HGM-MZ will detect the problem and cause its yellow FAULT LED to
glow. Additionally, an external alarm device may activate and an audible alarm may sound if those features
have been enabled (Pages 21 & 25).
The next time the HGM-RD polls the affected monitor its yellow FAULT LED will also glow. Additionally, an
external alarm device may activate and an audible alarm may sound if those features have been enabled
(Pages 16 & 25).
Depending on the nature of the fault, the HGM-MZ may or may not continue to operate normally. Under a
non-critical fault condition, the HGM-MZ will continue to measure and log data, but some peripheral functions
may be compromised. Under a critical fault condition, action is required for the HGM-MZ to operate normally.
The table on the following page lists the various fault conditions and explains what action should be taken to
correct the problem.
Navigating to the Fault Screen
Display the System Screen (Page 19); and then press the FAULTS key to display the Fault Screen of the
selected monitor.
Fault Screen
CRITICAL FAULTS
• NO FLOW ON ZONE – Go to the System Screen (Page 19) and press the ZONES key. The Zone
Screen will display a “NO FLOW” message in each individual zone affected. Check for a blockage in
the air sample line or at the line end filter. Once the blockage has been cleared, the HGM-MZ will return
to normal operation after the zone has been sampled. NOTE: This may take several minutes since it is
dependent upon how many zones there are and their lengths. The HGM-MZ will clear the fault the next
time it polls the effected zone and the HGM-RD will return to normal operation the next time that it polls
the HGM-MZ.
• NO FLOW ON PURGE – Check the purge line for a blockage. Verify that the length of the purge line
and exhaust line do not exceed 300 feet in length.
• NO FLOW DETECTED – Check for proper pump operation. Check the water trap – drain if necessary.
• CLIPPING FAULT – The detector voltage may be out of tolerance. Check the Diagnostic Screen for
the DET voltage, AVE voltage and ZERO voltage. Call the factory with this information for further
instructions.
Instruction 3015-5157
38
Halogen Gas Monitor – MultiZone Remote Display
• REZERO VOLT TOL – The detector output voltage is out of tolerance. Check the Diagnostic Screen
as in item 4 and contact the factory for assistance.
• TRIGGER FAULT – No trigger from IR source pulser. Contact factory with all information from the
DIAGNOSTIC SCREEN for farther instructions.
NON CRITICAL FAULTS
• BOX TEMP FAULT – Enclosure’s internal temperature is outside normal range (or IR sensor has
failed). Check the installation to verify that the monitor is not being subjected to extreme temperatures.
Verify that the ventilation holes are not obstructed. Check the Diagnostic Screen for the ZERO
temperature, BNCH temperature and BOX temperature. Call the factory with this information for further
instructions.
• BENCH TEMP FAULT – Optical bench is outside of normal operating range (or sensor has failed).
Check the installation to verify that the monitor is not being subjected to extreme temperatures. Check
the Diagnostic Screen for the ZERO temperature, BNCH temperature and BOX temperature. Call the
factory with this information for further instructions.
• PRESSURE SENSOR – Manifold pressure is outside normal operating range (or sensor has failed).
Check the Diagnostic Screen record ALL data. Call the factory with this information for further
instructions.
• LOOP FAULT – This would only be displayed if the dual 4-20 mAdc option was installed and one or both
current loops are open. Check the wiring to load/monitoring circuit on both 4-20 mA loops.
• CONFIG FAULT – There is an error in HGM Setup Screen #2 – Number Zones Installed field, or in RDM
Setup Screen #1 – Number of HGMS on Network field. Check that the number of zones installed for each
HGM unit and the number of HGM units on the network are properly programmed. Check to ensure that
the manifold solenoid cable connector in each HGM unit is securely fastened to its terminal connector.
Check for an illegal parameter. If necessary, reset to the factory default settings.
Reset to Factory Default Settings
IMPORTANT: Performing this function deletes all program parameters, alarms, faults, trends and log files.
Resetting the HGM-MZ –
1. Press and hold down the Factory Default switch inside the HGM-MZ (see page___)
2. Cycle AC power OFF, then ON
3. After the unit emits five beeps, release the switch.
4. Reprogram the HGM-MZ as described in the HGM-MZ – Setup Programming section of the HGMMZ Instruction Manual (P/N 3015-5074).
Resetting the HGM-RD – Occasionally it will be necessary to rest the HGM-RD to its factory default
settings.
1. Press and hold down the Factory Default switch inside the HGM-MZ (see page___)
2. Cycle AC power OFF, then ON;
3. After the unit emits five beeps, release the switch.

Halogen Gas Monitor – MultiZone Remote Display
Clearing System Faults
If the fault condition is associated with an HGM-MZ, the monitor will return to normal operation soon after the
problem is corrected. At that time the YELLOW LED will turn off and any external alarms connected to the
monitor’s alarm relays will also turn off. The HGM-RD will return to normal operation the next time it polls the
affected HGM-MZ monitor.
Once the system malfunction has been corrected it may take some time for the fault condition to clear
completely. If the fault is associated with a specific zone, the HGM-MZ must first cycle back to the affected
zone before it returns to normal operation. At that time the YELLOW LED will turn off and any external alarms
connected to the monitor’s alarm relays will also turn off. The HGM-RD will return to normal operation the
next time it polls the affected monitor.
Viewing Fault Log
A data log of the last 20 fault conditions is retained in memory. From the Fault Screen press ENTER to
display the fault log.
Fault Screen
Fault Log Screen
The Fault Log screen lists potential fault conditions in the left column. It also displays a check mark (?)
indicating which problems were associated with each fault condition, as represented by the vertical cursor
bar. As you move the bar horizontally using the LEFT/RIGHT cursor keys, the date and time the fault
condition was detected is displayed in the upper right hand corner of the display window.
Anytime the fault status changes, there is an entry in the fault log, both when the fault occurs and when it is
cleared.

The Calibration Screen
Overview
The Calibration Screen is used to adjust the calibration factor for each refrigerant gas. It is also used to
program the instrument for new gasses.
IMPORTANT: Changing information on CAL FACTORS will VOID the factory calibration. Typically, the unit
will remain within the factory-calibrated accuracy indefinitely and no calibration is required. Complex software
algorithms adjust for temperature drift, IR source aging, and pressure changes in order to keep the unit within
factory accuracy specifications.
Navigating to the Calibration Screen
On the System Screen, select the target HGM-MZ unit and access that monitor’s Setup Screen #1. Then
select the CAL option to go to the selected monitor’s Calibration Screen.
Setup Screen
Setup Screen
Calibration Screen
Adjusting Calibration Factor
The factory default cal factor for standard units is 1.000. This value may be different if the high accuracy
option is ordered.
Modifications to calibration must be done on each monitor. If calibration is attempted from the RD unit, the
“Use monitor front panel interface to adjust calibration” message is displayed.
Instruction 3015-5157
41
Halogen Gas Monitor – MultiZone Remote Display
Calibration Procedure on Main Monitor
The CAL FACTOR is determined by sampling a known dilution of the type of refrigerant gas to be sampled.
The sample must be prepared to less than half the desired accuracy and the concentration must be corrected
for ambient temperature and pressure at the time of measurement.
Calibration is best performed at or near full scale (1,000 PPM). It can, however, be done at any
concentration, and ideally in the range where maximum accuracy is desired down to, but not below,
100 PPM.
A cylinder of refrigerant gas at a certified PPM level must be used to assure sampling occurs at ambient
conditions. A minimum sample size of 5 liters is required.
The HGM should be operating for at least one hour prior to performing a calibration.
Prepare the HGM-MZ for sampling by initially setting its CAL FACTOR to 1.000 (Page 42). Next, set up the
HGM-MZ for a logging interval of zero minutes (Page 26), and place the HGM-MZ in its zone hold mode for
the zone you wish to use for calibration purposes (Page___).
Connect the sample bag directly to the intake port for the zone you have set up and allow the HGM-MZ to
sample the entire bag. When sampling is complete, view the trend data for the zone used to sample
(Page 38). Read the measured PPM by placing the cursor on the spikes cause by the sample. If the bag
was large enough for multiple samples, average the most stable ones.
The new CAL factor is computed by dividing the known gas value by the measured value. Typically this value
will be between 0.95 and 1.05. Enter the computed CAL factor into the monitor using the HGM-RD (Page 42)
or PC software. This value is stored in non-volatile memory.
Programming New Gasses (I didn’t see any optionon the unit to perform this. Did I miss
something?)
As new refrigerants come into use the HGM-MZ allows the addition of these new gases to its on-board
refrigerant gas library. At the end of the gas library list is an option labeled CUSTOM for adding new gases.
From the Calibration Screen use the LEFT/RIGHT arrows to select CUSTOM from the list of refrigerants.
Next, press ENTER, and use the UP/DOWN arrow keys to enter the calibration factor. The selection of the
matching gas and CAL factor is performed by Bacharach by analyzing the new refrigerant. When the
matching gas is determined, field calibration is possible by using the same procedure as for other refrigerants.
When the new gas entry is complete, setup the appropriate zone for CUSTOM.
Program the instrument for a new gas as follows:
From the Calibration Screen, use the PREV GAS or NEXT GAS options to scroll through the list of available
choices until the CUSTOM option is displayed.
Custom Gas Screen?

1. Select the CUSTOM option to assign a name to the refrigerant.
a. Use the LEFT/RIGHT cursor keys to move across the entry field and the UP/DOWN cursor
keys to modify the individual characters.
b. Press ENTER to accept the new entry or ESC to revert to the previous setting.
2. Enter the new CAL Factor as received from Bacharach.
The Diagnostic Screen
Overview
The Diagnostic Screen displays reference values for use by repair technicians for troubleshooting purposes.

Halogen Gas Monitor – MultiZone Remote Display
Diagnostic Screen Overview
The Diagnostic Screen contains sensor data and status information useful for trouble shooting various fault
conditions. An explanation of each line is given below along with normal operating ranges.
LINE 1: Detector Voltage – This is the peak-to-peak output of the IR sensor, in the absence of
refrigerant this value can range from 3.900V to 4.500V.
LINE 2: Average Detector Voltage – This is simply a running average of the values displayed
in line 1.
LINE 3: Zero Voltage – This is the IR sensor output that was stored during the last purge cycle and
has the same range as line 1.
LINE 4: Noise – This is a 16 point running average of the noise portion of IR bench output. This
reading is valuable mainly when refrigerant is NOT present.
LINE 5: Average Absorbency – This is the optical absorbency computed from the values in lines 2
and 3. In the absence of refrigerant the absorbency is 0.000AU. When sampling refrigerants, its
value varies proportionally with the refrigerant concentration.
LINE 6: uMoles/L – This is the absolute concentration in micro-moles per liter of refrigerant based on
line 4 and the internal calibration. There are two figures given. The first (which is annotated by a B) is
the actual measurement at the IR bench. The second is the calculated value corrected to ambient
conditions (temperature + pressure).
LINE 7: PPM – Parts Per Million is the volume concentration referenced to standard temperature and
pressure and is computed from lines 5, 8 and 13. There are two figures given. The first (annotated by
a B) is the actual PPM at the IR bench. The second is a PPM reading normalized to standard
temperature and pressure.
LINE 8: Zero Temperature – This line contains the sensor and enclosure temperature measured and
stored during the last purge cycle in degrees C.
LINE 9: Bench Temperature – This is the current IR sensor temperature in degrees C as well as the
raw voltage coming from the temperature sensor itself. This value can range from ambient to ambient
+15 degrees C.
LINE 10: Box Temperature – This is the current internal enclosure temperature along with the raw
voltage from the temperature sensor, and has the same range as line 9.
LINE 11: Pressure – This is the current absolute manifold pressure in PSIA along with the output
voltage of the pressure sensor. This value should always be 0.2 to 1.0 PSIA below ambient (line 13).
LINE 12: Vacuum – The vacuum pressure is measured every purge cycle by closing all sample
valves. Its value is typically 2.5 to 4.0 PSIA below ambient (line 13).
LINE 13: Ambient – Ambient pressure is measured every purge cycle with the sample pump off and
the manifold open. Its value is weather and altitude dependent and can range from 10.0 to 15.5 PSIA.

Halogen Gas Monitor – MultiZone Remote Display
RS-485 Communication Protocol
Overview
The following instructions are intended as a guide for integrating the HGM-MZ network into a Building
Management System. If you are unfamiliar with complex systems of this type, it is recommended that you
contact Bacharach for technical assistance.
MODBUS RTU Protocol
The HGM-MZ monitor communicates with master devices (such as the HGM-RD or a Building Management
System) over the RS-485 serial interface. The monitor is configured with a two wire RS-485 serial bus, and
therefore, data transmission occurs in ‘half-duplex” mode. Consequently, only one device may be in transmit
mode at any given time.
Programmers should refer to the “MODBUS Protocol Reference Guide” for details and more comprehensive
instructions. The guide is available on the Modicon web site at:
http://www.modicon.com/techpubs/TechPubNew/PI_MBUS_300.pdf
Specific communication software is available at: http://www.bacharach-inc.com/downloads.htm
Instruction 3015-5157
49
Halogen Gas Monitor – MultiZone Remote Display
HGM-MZ MODBUS RTU Operation
Overview
The HGM-400 and HGM-RD are equipped to communicate with other equipment using the MODBUS RTU
protocol. Using this communication channel a MODBUS master device may communicate with up to 15
HGM-MZ’s on a communications network, exchanging measurement information, alarm data, fault data,
history (logs and trends) and setup information. Additionally, the MODBUS master can control the operating
state of an HGM-MZ, placing the HGM-MZ in any of its different operating modes. The network may be
configured such that the HGM-MZ’s are connected directly to the MODBUS master device, or the MODBUS
master device may communicate with the HGM-MZ’s through the HGM-RD.
NOTE: This document will assume that the reader is familiar with the various parameters used to setup the
HGM-MZ, as well as the different operational modes that the HGM-MZ may be placed in. If you are unfamiliar
with this information, please reference the HGM-MZ operations manual.
Protocol Details
A two-wire RS-485 bus is used for transmission, therefore communication occurs in a Half-Duplex mode. The
HGM-MZ is a slave device and will respond to queries in the MODBUS RTU format from a master device.
Two MODBUS functions are supported. They are function 03 (read holding register) and function 16 (Preset
Multiple registers). Please refer to the MODBUS Protocol Reference Guide (available at
www.modicon.com/techpubs/techPubNew/PI_MBUS_300.pdf) for protocol detail and use instructions.
Using the two MODBUS functions, a master device may read, modify and write data and status information to
any HGM on the network. HGM data is organized into structures (internal to the HGM-MZ) which can be
accessed by the MODBUS registers defined in this document. A corresponding set of data structures should
be maintained by the master device. These master device data structures become the destination for
responses to read queries and sources for preset register commands. When a read holding register query is
made by the master device the HGM-MZ responds by sending the contents of the structure referenced by the
specified register. After the master validates the HGM-MZ response using the CRC bytes, it must then move
the data into its matching data structure before individual items may be accessed or modified. Therefore, the
master data structure should correspond to the HGM-MZ data structure byte for byte. Note that some data
structures have been divided into multiple registers due to MODBUS RTU message length constrains. To
change a setting in the HGM-MZ, the master device first reads the register structure that contains the data
item to be modified, makes the desired change, then sends the structure back using the preset multiple
register function. If the transaction is successful, the HGM-MZ sends the appropriate MODBUS response. It
is the responsibility of the master device when making modifications to insure that all parameters transferred
fall inside the working limits of the HGM-MZ.
Notes on HGM-MZ Polling
After the HGM-MZ’s are setup and operating, the master device need only poll each HGM for its status
register which contains summary data of the HGM’s alarms, faults, and operating state. If exceptions are
detected through the status register and more details are required, additional registers can be examined.
Also if current PPM values are required, the PPM register provides access to current PPM values for all
zones. The HGM-MZ requires a minimum of 20 seconds to complete a gas concentration measurement for a
single zone. Therefore, it is not necessary to poll the HGM-MZ more frequently than once every 15-20
seconds, as there will not be any new data available/obtained by more frequent polling. In fact, excessive
polling will slow the operation of the HGM-MZ. Under no circumstances should the HGM-MZ be continuously
polled at rate faster than 500mS, as this could result in erroneous readings by the HGM-MZ.
Notes on Network Topologies
HGM-MZ’s may be connected directly to the MODBUS network or they may be connected to the network
through an HGM-RD. In either case, each HGM-MZ must have a unique node ID. Up to 15 HGM-MZ’s can
be connected directly to the MODBUS network.
If HGM-MZ’s are accessed via an HGM-RD connected to a MODBUS network, the HGM-RD “BMS enabled”
parameter must be set equal to “1” via the “RDM SETUP” screen on the HGM-RD. The same commands
Instruction 3015-5157
50
Halogen Gas Monitor – MultiZone Remote Display
and registers are used to communicate with the HGM-MZ directly or through the HGM-RD. If the
communications is through the HGM-RD, it monitors each MODBUS message to determine if the message is
intended for one of the HGM-MZ’s it is connected to. If it is, the HGM-RD passes the message through to the
HGM-MZ’s. If it is not, the message is not passed through. The HGM-RD does not make any modifications
to MODBUS messages. It simply passes the query through to the HGM-MZ, and passes the response back
to the MODBUS master. In other words, it allows the HGM-MZ’s to be logically connected to the MODBUS
network, when physically they are connected to the local HGM-RD network. It is very important to understand
that the HGM-RD will only pass messages through to the HGM-MZ when the HGM-RD is either in the
“SYSTEM” screen or the “ZONE VIEW” screen. If the HGM-RD is in any other screen, it will return a
MODBUS “busy” exception response (exception code 06).
All HGM-RD screens, except the SYSTEM and ZONE VIEW screens, have a 10 minute timeout interval, after
which the screen will return to either the SYSTEM or ZONE VIEW screen, depending on which one it was last
in. Also, the HGM-RD can be password protected such that a password entry is required in order to view
screens other than the SYSTEM or ZONE VIEW screen.
Key Comm Protocol Parameters
MODBUS Mode: RTU only
HGM-MZ Baud Rate: Default is 19,200. Programmable as defined in System data register
Parity: No Parity
Stop Bits: Default is 1. Can be set for 2 via System data register
Maximum Response Time: 4000mS when directly accessing the HGM-MZ. 8,000mS when accessing the
HGM-MZ through the HGM-RD.
Error Checking: CRC per MODBUS specifications
Also of note is the fact that all data sent out from the HGM-400 is in “little endian” byte order (Least significant
byte followed by most significant byte). This should be taken into account if the master that process the data
is a “big endian” type. Non-data information (starting address, number of points, etc.) follows normal
MODBUS protocol, which is Big Endian.

Notes on Alarms and Alarm Acknowledge
The HGM-MZ can be operated in two different alarm acknowledge modes, Auto and Manual (set via the
alarm_ack_mode variable in the system data register). For purposes of this discussion, the term “Alarm”
refers to a HGM-MZ state where the alarm light is on and the appropriate alarm relay is activated. The term
“Alarm condition” refers to the external condition (i.e., refrigerant leak) that initially causes the HGM-MZ to go
into an alarm. If an alarm occurs it can be handled in one of 3 ways.
1. Non-Latching Mode. This mode is enabled by setting the AUTO_ACK_MODE parameter in the
system register to “1”. In this mode, if an alarm condition occurs an HGM-MZ alarm will be created. If
the alarm condition is subsequently removed, the HGM-MZ alarm will automatically be cleared by the
HGM-MZ when the zone in alarm is sampled “clear”. Note, in this mode of operation, it is possible for
an alarm to occur and be cleared without user or MODBUS master intervention. If this is the case, the
only evidence of the alarm would be contained in the HGM-MZ alarm log.
2. Latching Mode with Silence. This mode is enabled by setting the AUTO_ACK_MODE in the system
register to “0”. In this mode, if an alarm condition occurs, an HGM-MZ alarm will be created. In order
for the alarm to be removed the MODBUS master will write a “0” to the ALARM parameter in the ZONE
register. This will cause the alarm to be “silenced” in the HGM-MZ (i.e., the alarm relays will return to
their normal state and the ALARM lamp will be extinguished). The next time the zone with the alarm
condition is sampled, if the alarm condition still exists, the alarm will be reactivated and the alarm
parameter will be reset to “1” in the HGM-MZ. Otherwise, if the alarm condition has cleared, no further
action is required and normal operation will resume.
3. Latching Mode without Silence. This mode is enabled by setting the AUTO_ACK_MODE in the
system register to “0”. In this mode, if an alarm condition occurs, an HGM-MZ alarm will be created.
The HGM-MZ MODBUS master will then write a “1” to the ALARM ACK parameter in the zone
register. The alarm will continue to persists (i.e., Relays in alarm state and Alarm light on) until the
offending zone is sampled and no alarm condition is detected. At that point, the ALARM ACK
parameter is automatically cleared by the HGM-MZ, as is the ALARM parameter. NOTE: If the
ALARM ACK parameter is set to “1” and the ALARM CONDITION is upgraded (from leak to spill, or
spill to evacuate) the ALARM ACK parameter will automatically be cleared to “0” by the HGM-MZ.
